#AdultDayCare aimed at corporate executives

I wonder if they provide rompers, too?

Thursday will be the opening day of Montreal’s first adult daycare, and possibly the first one in Canada. It’s the brainchild of the Turner family called iChild.

Its main focus is corporate clients — such as accounting firms or people in the financial sector, who need a way to blow off stress.

There are crayons, teddy bears, a nap area and an adult-sized ball pit. The paint and decor on the walls wouldn’t be out of place in a preschool room.

I remember when adults wanting to blow off stress from work did things like playing handball, tennis, golf or joined bowling or softball teams. Or adults indulged in hobbies and spent time with their families.

I wish I could brush this off as mere silliness, but the worrisome aspect of it is that it is just another symptom of the continuing deconstruction of Western principles, traditions, and what it means to be an adult.

And that’s not just a kid in a larger meatsuit.

That is just sad… for me, blowing off steam usually just means two words…. Ballistic Therapy….

I don’t get it. Why don’t they just go to the gym?
We used to call people that acted like this “sissies”.

I remember when adults wanting to blow off stress from work had 3-martini lunches. Those were the good ol’ days, prior to the Summer o’ Love and Psychotherapy Nation. I note in passing that Amazon boasts over 600,000 books matching the string “self help”.

I just, um, well, ach. Sigh. Good grief.

On the bright side, it might keep lefties off the streets, stopping them from their normal mayhem, violence, arson, and vandalism. Punching police horses. Stabbing people. Etc
